I am pleased to share with you information about an upcoming Club and Volunteer Conference taking place on Sunday 6th October at Aston Villa Football Club. This conference is still open for bookings if you are interested.
The event, which is free to attend, is a great opportunity to find out all about the latest Table Tennis England programmes, as well as network with other Clubs and Leagues. The event is made up of a series of workshops including an introduction to the exciting new TT Kidz programme. So far, there have been over 300 bookings on TT Kidz programmes nationwide. TT Kidz seeks to grow the game for 7-11 year olds by providing a fun, inspiring and engaging first experience of the sport.
The agenda for the day is below.
